Community Invited to Duke Forward Campaign Celebration

Event to be held at Nasher Museum Friday, April 21

Duke Forward Campaign Celebration
Duke Forward Campaign Celebration will take place Friday, April 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Nasher Museum of Art.

To the Duke Community:

Duke University's $3.25 billion comprehensive fundraising campaign will successfully conclude on June 30, 2017.

In the last seven years, we have worked together to achieve campaign goals that benefit the entire university community. We have raised more than $450 million for financial aid programs across the university. Other gifts have enabled Duke to renovate historic West Campus buildings, establish more than 80 endowed professorships, support experiential learning programs in each of our 10 schools, and fuel groundbreaking advances in medical discovery and treatment.

These advancements are made possible only through the daily work of faculty, staff, and students, which in turn inspires the generous financial support of Duke's alumni and friends. Their investment is a vote of confidence in you, the Duke community.

Please join me as we celebrate the end of the campaign at the Duke Forward Campaign Celebration, a Duke-wide community event on Friday, April 21, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Nasher Museum of Art. Together, we will celebrate with food, drinks, and entertainment provided by student groups.

We have made great progress: supporting more students, recruiting and retaining the best faculty, and addressing some of society's greatest challenges. Thank you for your work to fulfill the promise of Duke.
